The room was perfect for a family of five. We didn't opt for daily housekeeping. It was close to everything! The room was a little beat up. The light in the shower didn't work and the pull cord for the fan was missing in the master bedroom. The tile floors needed to be mopped a little better. We would definitely stay here again! We also forgot to pairs of Beats headphones behind and the hotel found them and shipped them immediately...very impressed!

Overall, we had a Great Family Vacation & stay here at Grande Villas!! Our Villa was very nice but the water pressure in our master bathroom wasn't that great & the internet could have been faster.... Other then that we really enjoyed our stay here!! Thank you Grande Villas!!

We booked for 2 nights. In Orlando for our daughter's national dance competition. Was about 6 miles from here to the Walt Disney Dolphin, so that shows you about how many miles you are from the parks. That 6 miles was periodically a long 6 miles due to traffic. That is to be expected in Orlando.
The resort is located very close to a bunch of restaurants. Also a Walgreens down the road, across the street (Vineland).
Checked in an hour early without hassle. Upon inspection, the rooms was very clean and accommodated the 5 of us quite nicely. 3rd floor room, 1 king master BR with jacuzzi tub/Bath, one Queen BR, 1 common bthrm, full kitchen completely equipped.
Was forced with paperwork to fill out within 6 hours of stay to account for 8 of everything. Was OK with that. I didn't want to get charged for an employees laziness of accounting and didn't take too long.
Pool area is great. Ran into some drunks poolside. They had alcohol in the pool with their cups sitting on the rim of the pool. That being said, security was present and stared them down until they felt uncomfortable and I think they left. We just opted to not go down there when this was happening.
Very friendly staff. Always welcoming and able to give advice.
Parking was no problem.
No elevators. So if you do not want to climb stairs, I suggest you pre-book for a ground level suite or call ahead.
Overall, this is nice. Mature landscaping, lush grounds, friendly staff and clean and accommodating rooms.
